On Being Stuck: Tapping Into the Creative Power of Writer’s Block Book Review

Ask any writer and they will tell you that writer’s block is the most difficult part of writing.

In her 2016 book, On Being Stuck: Tapping Into the Creative Power of Writer’s Block, Laraine Herring not only that writer’s block is real, but literally walks her reader out of it and back to writing. While other successful writers have said that writer’s block is an excuse to not write, Ms. Herring understands that not only is it real, but it does stop the writing process in its tracks. In addition to comforting the writer during their writer’s book, she includes writing exercises and basic yoga moves/breathing exercises to relieve the stress from the writer’s block.

I really like this book. It’s easy to criticize your fellow writer they are stuck due to writer’s block, it’s harder to bring them out of it and back to writing. I especially appreciated the basic yoga moves/breathing exercises because getting up and moving is often the best way to decrease stress or anxiety.

I recommend it.
